$$x_{intercept} = (1.6, 0)$$ $$y_{intercept} = (0, 2)$$
To find the intercepts, one must substitute the opposite variable with zero and then solve the equation. To find $x_{intercept}$, for instance: $$10x + 8(0) = 16$$ $$10x = 16$$ $$x = \frac{16}{10} = 1.6$$ To find the $y_{intercept}$: $$10(0) + 8y = 16$$ $$8y = 16$$ $$y = 2$$ And, finally, to draw the graph one simply plots the intercepts and draws the line that connects them.
